ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2013
On tap at 2SP. Pours a dark black color with a small tan head with moderate retention and little bits of lacing. Aroma has coffee up front, some light roast, and vanilla with a little bit of bourbon and a hint of chocolate. Taste has lots of coffee upfront, the oak and bourbon come through nicely with some vanilla. Like the nose, a hint of chocolate on the finish. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Tap at The Big Hunt. Pours a fairly jet black with no head thanks to idiot bartender. Did however get a pint glass poured to the brim with Founders Breakfast Stout for $8. Cant beat that :0

Nose up front is buttery waffles, maple, chocolate pound cake. Taste is quite delicious: marzipan, toasted coconut, almond butter, hazelnut coffee, soft amaretto booze. Palate is thick and oily. Wow. Very delicious. Small amounts of cardboard and green bell pepper/green coffee distract, but you have to be looking for it. So...still needs some tweaking but bound to be a big success.

On tap @ the Brewery-Dark brown pour with no head & good lacing. Boozy aroma. Some coffee, some oatmeal, bourbon barrell flavor, but Id have liked to see more in there. Good flavor, solid brew.

nimbleprop (7487) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Big 16oz pour at Maxs in Baltimore. Pours a lightly viscous, opaque black with one ring of yellow head. Really great nose, nutty, coffee, malty, brown sugar, toast, light pepper, molasses. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, vanilla, coffee grounds, toast, dark malts, molasses. A really great blend of flavors. Full bodied, smooth, vanilla, toasty finish.

Nickls (2374) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Tap. Tan thin head, not entirely black...more brownish mahogany. Bit if an acrid note int the aroma, smoke, woodiness, and chocolate. Very chocolate driven and missing out in the bourbon notes overall, lots of smoke and chocolate though. Thicket silky body with good carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2011
On tap at Frisco: Pours an opaque black with a thin covering of light tan head. Nose has lots of fresh coffee, dark chocolate and bourbon. First sip has a biting carbonation, likely from the beer being served too cold. Upon warming the sweet dark caramely malts come out along with plenty of espresso beans and dark chocolate with vanilla and bourbon oak complexity before a slightly drier roasted finish. Could use a little more body, but otherwise its pretty tasty.
